Douro-Dummer Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Executive Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

We have rebuilt a gorgeous custom 2009 Linwood home on our 120' waterfront lot. The home is approx 2500 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 patio/deck areas, 2 driveways & an amazing shoreline.

We are a family of 4. We have been renting for 15 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have 9 and 4 year old sons.

We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. The fishing is great off the dock. It is very safe for kids swimming. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lake house year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.

The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends.

The Main Level:

The main level has a huge Great Room that is open to the dining room, spacious deck and large fully equipped kitchen. The BBQ is right off the dining room & the deck is huge with amazing views. The great room has a gas fireplace. There is a 32" flat screen TV and DVD player, 4 couches and lots of space to relax & view the lake. The master bedroom has a king bed and ensuite bath (clawfoot tub, glass shower & huge vanity). There is also a laundry room with a washer & dryer and storage that leads to the garage. This level sleeps 2 people.

The Upper Loft:

The upstairs loft has 2 bedrooms. The first is a guest room with a romantic queen bed & window seat. Secondly, we have a bunk room with a set of bunk beds and 2 single beds. There is a full bathroom upstairs. This level sleeps 6.

The Lower Level Walk Out:

The lower level walks out to the lake & patio space. We have 2 bedrooms on this level. One has a queen bed & the other is a double. The sectional in the second living area has a queen bed pullout. There is a full bathroom on this level as well. This level sleeps 4-6.

About The Owner

We are a family of 4. We have been renting for 15 years and have met many wonderful families along the way. My husband and I have a 9 and 4 year old son. We currently reside in Toronto and both work in IT. One day we plan to retire in our beloved lakefront home.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Ontario

We originally bought in this location because we loved the lake & with the nearby amenities we have the best of both worlds. We prefer a quieter fishing lake than a busy boating lake. There are no houseboats on our lake, few skidoos & great fishing. Our lake is however fed by Stoney Lake and so there is a boat launch across the street onto Stoney Lake for those days we want to boat on the Trent Severn lake system. The drive is quick. The road is plowed seasonally & so we enjoy our lakehouse year round and love the proximity to so many different activities.

What makes this cottage unique

We think one of the most unique benefits of this property is the design. Given we had owned the cottage for 6 years, when it came to building, we knew exactly how we wanted to use the new space. The house is big and spacious so you never feel crowded. The areas are wonderful for gathering with family & friends. The BBQ is right off the dining room & kitchen - the deck is huge with amazing views. The lakefront is fantastic for kids and fishing. We can catch large & small mouth bass off the dock! We absolutely love our home and believe you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

October 2012:



3 generations of the women in my family came together for a weekend in October to celebrate several “turning 50" this year at our first ever family girls’ weekend away. Our weekend at the Lakehouse was fantastic. Communication with Vij and Christy was top knotch, any questions I had while booking and prior to/during our stay were answered swiftly.



Friday was chilly, we stayed in, turned on the fire, played games and gossiped - but it warmed up for the balance of the weekend and we were out walking the roads and enjoyed a bonfire at the firepit while snacking on appetizers - the kitchen is fully stocked for all cooking purposes and we had the best beef tenderloin off of the bbq Saturday night.



You’ve provided every comfort, and the location is perfect - being on the lake was incredible. I woke up early Saturday morning and watched the mist on the water break as the sun rose with my coffee in hand.



Thank you both for opening your home to share with us. Everything you've done in decorating makes the cottage feel well loved and like home.



All the old biddies and our younger 3rd generation had a hoot (and so did I, even though I was forced to play charades Saturday night). Thank god for wine.

Gorgeous homey cottage with beautiful lake access

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting out this cottage from Vij. The cottage is beautiful, just like the photos posted here but even better! It's very clean and the decor is very unique and pretty. It has lots of rooms and beds which is perfect for a larger group of any kind! The access to White Lake was also beautiful, water was clear; perfect for both canoeing and swimming. Will definitely rent out this cottage again in the years to come. Vij is very helpful in anything you need, each and every time :) It's a very relaxing and comfy cottage that makes everyone who have stayed not want to leave and come back for longer!

Former long time cottage owner

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely fantastic. On a great lake perfect for kids. Boats & watercraft do not come near the dock so it is very safe. Long dock & diving platform really great. Close to Peterborough where we live .A perfect place for our large family with lots of grandkids.We have rented 2 years in a row & loved it both times. We came to think of it as our place. Lots of room on all three levels of the cottage. Room to spread around & not feel crowded even with a larger group. As cottagers of 35 years we are pretty experienced . I cannot think of even one negative thing to say about this wonderful cottage on White Lake.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking to rent a cottage with 3 other couples and we fell upon this listing. We all looked at the pictures, read the description and said yes to this cottage. When we arrived Thurs afternoon, we were all shocked...the pictures didn't do it justice!! This wasn't a typical cottage...this was a home! It was beautifully decorated and everything was open concept, which we all loved!! Vij & Christy were amazing with responding back to emails/calls/texts whenever we had a problem (not that we did, just had to let them know I accidentally broke a wine glass). They also let myself and my sister to bring our small dogs! We all were in awe of how clean and spacious this cottage was and how COMFY the couches and beds were (a couple of our friends even said they had some of the best night sleeps at the cottage in a long time!). We'll definitely be coming back in Sept!! Thank you Vij & Christy!

Stunning Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend in September at this cottage with our 2 year old and it was a perfect fall getaway! It was truly more beautiful than the pictures. The gorgeous decor is absolutely breathtaking! Each room is designed with such taste and it is such an elegant cottage yet is so comfortable and cozy!. The soaring celings, stunning decor and the beautiful fireplace made it difficult to leave the cottage! The views of the lake from every room were amazing and the outdoor space was fabulous.Thank you to Christy and Vij for being such an absolute pleasure to deal with. We will absolutely be back for a future stay!
